Positive Prattle From The Desk Of The Editor
Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.1 Million Mo Brothers and Mo Sisters to participate, with formal campaigns in Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, the UK, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, South Africa and Ireland. In addition, Movember is aware of Mo Brothers and Mo Sisters supporting the campaign and
men’s health cause right across the globe, from Russia to Dubai, Hong Kong to Antarctica, Rio de Janeiro to Mumbai, and everywhere in between.
No matter the country or city, Movember will continue to work to change established habits and attitudes men have about their health, to educate men about the health risks they face, getting them to act on that knowledge, thereby increasing the chances of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment. In 2010, over 130,000 Australian Mo Brothers and Sisters got on board, raising $25 Million AUD. So this month I encourage all to get behind Movember by participating, supporting and donating.
